It looks like Hyperspace was updated incorrectly. Are you sure you have replaced the files in the "Extract where FTLGame.exe is" folder?

Re: [OVERHAUL - USES HYPERSPACE] FTL: MULTIVERSE Version 2.8 [The Nebula Update]

Postby TheMultiverseTeam » Sun Jun 14, 2020 7:17 pm

2.8 is out!
Improves nebula sectors and nebula beacons!

Code: Select all


Added 13 new Generic Nebula events.

Added 1 new Slug Nebula event.

Added the Light Nebula hazard, which is also used in the Coalition Cealaformer event.

Nebula beacons can now be distress beacons.

The Slug Saboteur lifeform detection ability is not currently working. As a temporary fix, Coalition C has a special version of

Slug Gel that also reveals enemy crew.

Added more slug pirate ships.

Added 4 new hacker ships.

Added a new exit beacon to the hacker sector.

Killing MFK Aces in the fleet delays the fleet by 1 jump.

Humans are more rare and slugs are more common in nebulas.

The crew kill quest event now checks for all kinds of anti-bio weapons.

Separatists can now be found in nebula sectors but orchids cannot.

Coalition B no longer starts with sensors.

Crates of resources can now be found in stores. They take an augment slot, and can be opened at empty beacons to give a randomzied

amount (randing from 5 to 10) of their designated resource.

Autoships now have orange cloaks.

Temporarily removed the Rogue slug nebula encounter. Will be added back in a future update. (Faction is not yet done being created)

Fixed the zoltan pulsar encounter in the black market having an asteroid field.

Fixed not being able to hold a ritual in the last stand.

Fixed the known "issue" with the background crashes from special background beacons being loaded on-top of each other. This didn't

normally affect gameplay much, but it caused issues with a new feature being added. This increased the file size a bit (as some

backgrounds had to be duplicated) but hopefully its worth it.

Fixed Ancient Beam using the Ancient Focus sprite.

Improved shading on some slug ships.

Fixed some shading issues on Rock Transport.


Added a little credits message for the Hyperspace devs.
